Bright and Glory Lakes
Both lakes have floating piers in which fishing is made convenient. There are boat launch ramps located on both lakes for those who have watercraft. These lakes are called Kettle Lakes as they are shaped like tea kettles. They are roundish and deep in the center (more than 40 feet). The lake bottom is marl, so wading and swimming are prohibited as people would sink in the marl.
